Toy Cameras....Not so easy to play with.

I love pictures taken with toy cameras. Ever since I discovered them I have been drawn to photographers who use them. Use them well. I am discovering that it is not only harder than I thought but expensive if you don't develop your own film and have a scanner. Hats off to those who are not only really good at it but shoot exclusively with film. I wish I could afford it! Posted by Picasa

This was the first roll of film I ran threw the Diana camera that I got on Ebay. I am going to tape it next time to tame the light leaks abit.

This is a fun shot, and I like the colors. One of the biggest problems that I had initially was guessing on the distance to the subject so I could set it on the lens on my Holga. I'm really bad at judging distances. :)

Excellent! I love the vignetting on this.

Oh, this is from the Diana!! Awesome image! (I bought almost 50 rolls of film off e-bay for my Holgas. It was all expired, I figured why not? I'm still on the learning curve and it will only add to the charm of the results. Came out to about $1.10 per roll. Can't be that.)

Sandy, thanks for stopping by. I am glad to find someone also a "homebody" taking pics of flowers and things around the house. That is me. :) I love your Diana shot. I never go out without tape on mine, but a few good leaks are nice. I use a LOT of expired films too. Hope to see more of your toy shots.
